Hillsong Unplugged – St Clara kyrka
For a few years Hillsong Church Stockholm have been doing a service in St Clara church, an old traditional church at the heart of central Stockholm.
Creating a lighting design for an old traditional church can be difficult. You don’t want to take over the room, you want to enhance what is already there. I wanted to make the high ceiling feel even higher. I placed the moving heads below the pillars all the way back to emphasize the structure of the building and for inclusion of the whole room. This way I could control the color not only on the stage but in the entire hall.
The two-light blinders are perfect behind the band, a little bit above the audiences eye level since they’re so bright. That way they don’t get blinded but the still feel the push and lift of the lights in the big moments, as well as the beautiful silhouette look of musos and singers on stage.
